Anyway, the gym teacher, whose name is Coach Keady, is standing next to Friedman, holding a medicine ball. She says, "Upper body strength: it's the key to fitness, and dating." She pushes the ball at Friedman; it knocks him over. Heh. Cheap, but who doesn't love it? "So toss that ball like your life really depends on it, 'cause it does." She wanders around while students prepare to start tossing the medicine ball. Grace asks Joan quietly, "She's homeless?" Friedman struggles to pick up the medicine ball and fails. He's the original ninety-pound weakling. If only Ramsay would come along and kick some sand in his face. Grace picks it up as Joan says that Casper sleeps in a shelter with really creepy people, and hangs out in the park all day because she has nothing else to do: "I have to do something!" Grace tosses the medicine ball to Glynis -- who manages it slightly better than Friedman did, but not much -- as she warns Friedman, "Look at my butt, Friedman, one more time. I dare you!" Friedman: "You wish, Marge." Glynis flings the ball sideways at Friedman, knocking him down yet again with another "Oof!" Yeah, I could watch that all night. Never gonna get old. Coach Keady, dry as a bone: "No lying down, Mr. Friedman. All right, people, let's break up into pairs." I hope they paid Aaron Himelstein extra to appear with those legs in those gym shorts. Glynis and her medicine ball hustle over to Luke: "School will be like a wasteland with you gone for a whole day." They start to kiss, but Keady's right up in their grills with a clearing of the throat. As they toss the ball back and forth, Grace suggests that Joan steal a utility bill so she can enroll in school: "Then she's off the streets...gets free food...can play with the medicine ball." I would add "doesn't have to listen to God Marley" to that list. Joan seems skeptical: "I thought you weren't interested in anyone but yourself." Grace: "This isn't about her. It's political. We're subverting the system, dude."
